If you have experience as a plumber, Qualify Me! can get you qualified in no time.
Attaining your plumbing licence in isn’t quite as easy as you have been led to believe. But don’t panic, you’re in the right place.
Let’s look at the steps to attaining your plumbing licence in your state or territory. You’ll soon be on your merry way to your plumbing contractor licence.
In most states there are two levels of plumbing licences. They are:
this licence allows you to work for a licensed plumbing company. You cannot sign off or work on your own; let alone start your own plumbing company.
this licence allows you to work as a contractor and start out on your own. You may also consider attaining a company licence and in turn personally applying for a qualified supervisor licence. Either way, you can go out there, market yourself and take on jobs. It’s important to note that you can only work within the plumbing work that you are licensed to do.
In order to attain your Tradesperson Certificate you will require a Certificate III in Plumbing Services. The streams you complete when you complete your qualification are the ones that will show up on your licence. Qualify Me!’s course advisors will walk you through the streams and make sure you choose the right ones.
To attain your plumbing contractor licence you require certain units to be completed from the Certificate IV in Plumbing Services qualification. These qualifications need to line up with the list of units for each stream.
There are a number of streams that fall under the plumbing licence. You will need to satisfy both experience and academic requirements for each stream in order to have them added onto your licence. The streams available through Qualify Me! are:
Even if you are fully qualified overseas, your papers and experience are pretty much useless as far as licensing in most states is concerned. You will not be able to apply for a licence directly. However from an academic perspective your papers and experience is very useful! Qualify Me! for example can assess your overseas plumbing qualifications, and your local experience and recognise your prior learning, skills and experience. Once assessed you will be trained in whatever gaps you may have, upskilled with Australian standards and regulations and awarded the relevant qualification you require for your licence. An example of common training for blokes from the UK is oxy-acetaline welding and cutting – you guys simply don’t do it over there!
I would like thank Romina she was terrific and very helpful, she is doing a great job .
Qualify Me! was the best decision made to earn a license. The team is very helpful and proactive.
I had years of experience but did not have the time to go back to TAFE. Thanks to Qualify Me! I was able to leverage off my experience and skip the more basic classes saving me time and money.
Im so happy after doing all this for my certificate 3 I got my licence from fair trading!
“It's your honesty and transparency throughout the process that really sets you apart from the other guys I dealt with before”
I’m a painter with a good few years experience. They helped me collect photos, references, work examples and then sent out a assessor to my site in a few days! 2 days later I had my qualification! Highly recommend; thanks Qualify Me!
The whole process from start to finish went very well, Georgette was simply the best in responding to the questions and is prompt and has sound knowledge about the course deliverables. Tommy, the Assessor is also very experienced and has vast knowledge about the building and construction industry. Many thanks for your assistance. Qualify Me! should be proud of the full team who is delivering a good outcome to the people.
I received a lot of support collecting my evidence. The trainer/assessor was very helpful and supportive. Overall I think the training program was great and would recommend it to a friend.

This was by far the easiest and best way to get what you want (qualification wise) the most friendly staff & the most helpful by far 500% would go through Qualify me again if I needed to get further qualification/s with thanks to all the staff. Damien
Was super quick and easy with the most polite people , where there when needed and always willing to go the extra mile for you
This program is excellent, I've been in business for myself now for 3 years and have 3 employees. I had completed certificate 2 in painting and decorating through another company previously only to find out it was no longer recognized. When I called James and explained my situation he was a massive help and getting my painters license was a breeze. Thanks so much. I have recommended qualify me to all my trade mates and hope they will be in contact with you.
I was very pleased throughout the whole process and more than happy to recommend Qualify Me to other people.
Your RPL program was very practical and straightforward…Thanks for sorting our my licensing troubles too!
